Restoring Testosterone Levels with Clomid and Enclomiphene

Are you curious about Clomid, an oral medication that can increase testosterone, increase the big O (orgasm), and increase the chance of conception? While it hasn’t obtained the same level of FDA approval for men as it has for safe use in female infertility, it can still be used to treat male hypogonadism. Some healthy athletes have even used it as a performance enhancer to increase muscle mass, although it is considered off-label and discouraged.

Clomid works on specific receptors in the body, signaling the brain to produce more of certain hormones (LH and FSH), increasing testosterone and sperm production. That effect makes it very attractive for treating a type of low testosterone called hypogonadism. It is important to note that hormonal changes may cause specific side effects, such as tenderness of the pectoral muscle, irritability, acne, and vision changes caused by swelling of the pituitary gland (very rare). Despite these potential side effects, Clomid is generally safe for most men, and side effects are typically reversible after stopping the medication. If you experience any of the mentioned side effects while taking Clomid, it’s best to discontinue the medication immediately.

There is also a related medication, Enclomiphene, which is a single subcomponent of clomiphene. This is more precisely targeted at raising testosterone and sperm without also increasing estrogen.  Some athletes and bodybuilders have explored using enclomiphene to boost testosterone levels and enhance muscle growth and performance. However, this practice is often controversial and may have legal and health implications.

There are some significant differences compared to using testosterone shots, which cause testicular shrinkage, infertility, and dependence. With Clomid or enclomiphene, you don’t have those side effects but still enjoy the higher testosterone levels.

Your healthcare provider, or BlueWater Family Wellness, will work with you to determine the optimal dosing strategy, including taking the medication on certain days and not taking it on others. The usual starting dose of Clomid for men is 5-50mg, which can be adjusted based on indication, lab results, and side effects.

So, if you’re considering Clomid, be sure to talk to your healthcare provider about whether it’s the right choice for you. The providers at BlueWater Family Wellness adjust these medications to restore your testosterone levels to the ideal range. By carefully targeting the excellent hormone range, the risk and severity of any side effects are minimized while restoring youthful, healthy energy, focus, and strength. With guidance, you can make an informed decision about your treatment options and take the next steps toward improving your fertility and overall health.
